FYI: The SY knives were mfg by Providence Knife Co. In Providence RI. We made a deal with them to make the gimmicked knives from a knife in their current line at the time. I think Providence has since moved their mfg ops offshore.
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

The Amazing Jumping Arrow effect by Mark K. Young could be adapted to a Swiss Army knife with the Swiss Cross moving up and down the handle of the knife.

I also designed new moves for an in full view color change in De La Torre style but with much more direct and even more open handling

There are several effects that are rarely displayed in the frame of color changing knife routines: multicolor multiplying [ball-knife] sequence, magical transfer other than between the hands.

... and more

I had a set of CCK made about 4 years ago. The knives are made from Buck Lancer pocket knives.

I bought the knives and had a custom knife maker put the scales that I wanted on them (white/black micarta). He charged me $75 to make the knifes, so all in all it was about $135 for the knives. At the time Buck told me that they could make me a custom set of Lancer's for about $220, but they have a limited selection scale material. I also wanted the scales glued on, and I don't remember if Buck could do it or not.

A custom knife maker would probably make you a set for around $200 depending on the materials you want for the scales. That is also assuming you provide the knives. It's an easy job for someone who knows what they are doing. The trick is finding a decent knife maker who would take an order that small.

If I were going to do it all over again then I would have Buck make the knives for me. They had some nice contrasting handle materials and you know they will do a quality job.

J.P. Jackson makes, perhaps, the finest sets I've ever seen out of original Case knives but availability is limited from talking to him. Lanny Kibbey makes some very nice sets as well in a variety of different materials. I would love to own a set of Buck color changing knives. Anyone interested in selling me a set?

A few years back, Dick Oakley and I both got new sets of Scotty's knives from the estate of Bill Johnson. I kept mine locked up, but Richard carried his with him everywhere. After a few months the white or bone scales on his knifes turned almost black and could not be polished or cleaned off.

Finally found a set of Buck and Sanders sets to add to my collection. I now see why the Sanders sets are held in such high esteem.

Someone mentioned Chad Long's FLASH DRIVES... I think they are great and bring the trick to today's hi-tech world (and you can carry 'em on airplanes)
